Everyday I cause harm. But it's ok.
We have weakened viruses and bacteria, injected them into all of us and caused chronic illness and disease in an attenuated form, this is how these pathogens have always caused harm. It is the bodies response to foreign things entering it, especially under hypersensitivity states, that is causing neurodevelopment disorders and chronic illness and much more.

The principle of double effect is directed at well-intentioned agentswho ask whether they may cause a serious harm in order to bring abouta good end of overriding moral importance when it is impossible tobring about the good end without the harm. A third commonmisinterpretation of double effect is to assume that the principleassures agents that they may do this provided that their ultimate aimis a good one that is ordinarily worth pursuing, the proportionalitycondition is satisfied and the harm is not only regretted butminimized. That is not sufficient: it must also be true that causingthe harm is not so implicated as part of an agent's means to this goodend that it must count as something that is instrumentally intended tobring about the good end. Some discussions of double effect wronglyassume that it permits acts that cause certain kinds of harm becausethose harms were not the agent's ultimate aim or were regretted ratherthan welcomed. The principle of double effect is much more specificthan that. Harms that were produced regretfully and only for the sakeof producing a good end may be prohibited by double effect becausethey were brought about as part of the agent's means to realizing thegood end. Double effect is silent about cases in which a harm mightpermissibly be brought about as a means to a good end.
Not if minor:Youre asking a theoretical question. Fetal well being can be checked by ultrasound / biophysical profile if you are worried that a recent exposure to electricity caused any harm.
Not by itself: in the mouth usually results from an underlying like , or other chronic illnesses like . Those if not adequately controlled can cause harm and should be treated. Once the underlying condition is treated, the oral candidiasis will resolve easily with treatment.Cause No Harm is a concept, philosophy and Core Value that can be adopted by individuals, families, educational institutions, Small to Medium Enterprises and large multi-national organisations, to reflect their personal integrity along with business ethics and strategy. Everything that is to be done will have as the first consideration, the idea that it must Cause No Harm. No harm to ourselves as individuals, other people, our equipment whether owned or leased, materials, others assets, the environment in which we work, the planet as a whole and future generations who will inherit the legacies we leave behind.Iron deficiency : does not cause fetal harm and i would recommend taking this. on the other hand by not taking this supplement can potentially cause lower fetal levels.If we haven't been taught to do no harm, we see no harm in doing harm. We cause harm and shrug it off. We cause harm and laugh about it. We cause harm and brag about it.Cause No Harm forms the foundation through which humanity can bring about an end to the that is the root cause of us harming each other and the environment, to build a sustainable world steeped in harmony, understanding, caring and mutual growth.The doctrine (or principle) of double effect is often invoked toexplain the permissibility of an action that causes a serious harm,such as the death of a human being, as a side effect of promoting somegood end. According to the principle of double effect, sometimes it ispermissible to cause a harm as a side effect (or “doubleeffect”) of bringing about a good result even though it wouldnot be permissible to cause such a harm as a means to bringing aboutthe same good end.A published in the journal Stem Cell shows that smoking can cause harm even when there is no clinical evidence showing that anything is wrong. A difficult issue that has arisen recently is the case where the defendant neither factually causes the harm, nor increases the risk of its occurrence. In  4 All ER 587 (), a doctor negligently failed to warn a patient of risks inherent in an operation, specifically . The patient had the operation and a risk materialized causing injury. It was found that even if the patient had been warned, the patient would still have undergone the operation, simply at a different time. The risk of the injury would be the same at both times. Accordingly, the doctor neither caused the injury (because but for the failure to warn, the patient would still have gone ahead with the operation), nor increased the risk of its occurrence (because the risk was the same either way). Yet the House of Lords, embracing a more normative approach to causation, still held the doctor liable. Lawyers and philosophers continue to debate whether and how this changes the state of the law.Yet many criticisms of the principle of double effect do not proceedfrom consequentialist assumptions or skepticism about the distinctionbetween intended and merely foreseen consequences but instead askwhether the principle adequately codifies the moral intuitions at playin the cases that are taken to be illustrations of the principle ofdouble effect. One important line of criticism has focused on thedifficulty of distinguishing between grave harms that are regretfullyintended as part of the agent's means and grave harms that areregretfully foreseen as side effects of the agent's means. Since theprinciple of double effect implies that the latter may be permissibleeven when the former are not, those who wish to apply the principle ofdouble effect must provide principled grounds for drawing thisdistinction. The application of Double Effect to explain thepermissibility of performing a hysterectomoy on a pregnant woman andthe impermissibility of performing an abortion to save a woman's lifeis often singled out for criticism on this score. Lawrence Masek(2010) offers a thoughtful defense of the principle of double effectthat proposes to construe what is intended by an agent as narrowly orstrictly as possible while also distinguishing between motivating sideeffect and non-motivating side effects. By contrast, Warren Quinn'sproposal to substitute the concept of direct agency for the concept ofintending to cause harm to someone as a means (see Section 1) wouldeffectively broaden the category of results that count asintended.
